You may know the classic Charles Dickens tale about Ebenezer Scrooge – the bitter and angry miser who undergoes a complete transformation through a series of profound experiences when he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, as well as the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.

This year, the Station Dinner Theatre will celebrate its 25th Anniversary Holiday Musical event with Christmas Memories: A Christmas Carol. This delightful adaptation is similar to the original, but with a humorous twist. Event-goers will experience a charming mix of traditional Christmas music alongside comical tunes from The Muppet Christmas Carol. The work is narrated by carolers, who take on the characters to bring the ever-popular holiday story to life. 

And of course, guests will also experience the long standing tradition of being served dinner by the actors themselves. The performance stars David Durst as Ebenezer, alongside Karen Nasca, Dave Edmunds, Lisa Slezak, Paul and Rae Jean Urbanowicz, and Carrie Smith. The show will end with their traditional Christmas closer, “Let There Be Peace on Earth.” 

Celebrate the season with this heart-warming rendition reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas. And one thing is for sure, this delightful adaptation won’t leave you saying, “Bah, Humbug!”

Tickets: $40, $36 for students and seniors, $28 for children 6 to 11 // Station Dinner Theatre // 4940 Peach St. // 864.2022

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.
